Presque Isle paid $10,000 to investigate its police chief. It won’t release the report.
The city of Presque Isle paid more than $10,000 to a Portland law firm this summer to quietly investigate its police chief, who resigned last week and is now running for sheriff.
In a resignation letter, Irwin wrote he was stepping down to focus on his campaign for Aroostook County sheriff, the county’s top law enforcement official. He announced his candidacy in February.
Following the July interviews, McKinley produced a final report, according to the invoice. But Puckett said that it was a “protected document” under Maine confidentiality laws and would not be released to the public.
